Hair Care part1: Shampoo & Conditioner according to Hair Color

HAIR CARE

Image

Shampoo is made up of water, cleansing agents, foaming agents, preservatives and other ingredients designed for specific types of hair.

Most formulas, regardless of brand or price, are remarkably similar, and all do a decent job of cleaning hair.

Moisturizing Shampoos,add conditioning agents — such as glycerin, silicone, panthenol and triglycerides — to give hair a soft, silky texture.

Deep-Cleaning Shampoos, use higher levels of detergents to wash away oil and product buildup.  I recomend to use these every other day or whenever hair looks dull or isn’t responding to your regular hair care products.

Dry Shampoos, which is a powdered substance used to clean hair without getting it wet!!! (YES , IT EXISTS!!😀 )  It contains ingredients designed to soak up excess oil. They can be used in between regular washings, to keep hair looking and smelling fresh !!!😀

Dandruff Shampoos,contain anti-fungal ingredients to reduce the fungi that cause dandruff. They should be rotated with a regular shampoo to keep hair from becoming too dry.

Baby shampoos, ( love the smell, by the way hahaha) are generally not strong enough to cleanse adult hair, but they contain gentle detergents that won’t sting a baby’s eyes or irritate his/her sensitive skin.

_____________________________

Here are some tips on buying your shampoo and conditioner :

1. Don’t let the price tag determine your choice, rest assured shampoos don’t have to cost a lot to be effective since the purpose is that they cleanse.

2. Pricy salon-brand shampoos don’t necessarily outperform inexpensive store brands !!! 

The same ingredients are often used for products in different price ranges.The only things that separate pricey salon-brand shampoos from drugstore formulas are fancy packaging and endorsements by celebrity hairstylists, who may or may not have any expertise when it comes to a product’s ingredients.

3.  If you are more hair consciuous  (like me hahah), special hair needs call for buying shampoo that is specially formulated !!!  ( Shampoo for special hair types on next post)
